Alex Orlando is a freelance journalist and writer based in San Francisco, California. He's currently at the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, where he writes about science and technology, entrepreneurship, health, or anything that gets his neurons firing.

In his past lives, Alex was a senior writer for Houston's Texas Medical Center and an ESL teacher in South Korea. His work has been featured in San Francisco Magazine, Berkeleyside and TMC Pulse, among others. 

When he's not writing, Alex likes hiking, traveling, cooking fried rice and getting lost in the silver screen. Don't ask about his addiction to movie theater popcorn.
